age(4) supports L1 Gigabit ethernet. It seems that your hardware
might be Attansic/Atheros L2 fast ethernet which is not yet
supported by FreeBSD. Supporting L2 wouldn't be hard as both
OpenBSD/NetBSD already have a driver, lii(4). I don't have a L2
hardware so porting/writing a L2 driver is beyond scope of my

As Christian Brueffer said, knowing the output of pciconf -lvc
would be big help to identify which hardware you've got.
